This sounds like homework. Per the LQ rules, we are not here to do your homework for you. And by asking someone else to do it you are only hurting yourself.

You should try it yourself, do some reading, and see how far you can get. Once you have something you can post it here and ask for help.

Please, do not post homework questions verbatim. Show us what have you tried so far and ask some specific questions so we can help you to clear your doubts. Thanks.
